I'd say ANSIfy them.  While they are derived from external code, they
have been hacked enough, and the MD5 algorithm isn't going to change
any time soon, so we might as well reformat them and generally clean
them up according to our current taste.

Of course, it's not high priority stuff, but sometimes it helps
putting our "mark" on code. :-)
